Tom Kerridge: Lose Weight For Good is a six-part series with Michellin star chef Tom Kerridge, following a group of dieters who want to achieve lasting weight loss with Tom’s take on low calorie recipes.
The series recruits 13 volunteers from his local area to test his recipes in conjunction with NHS-approved weight loss advice. The dieters on the 12-week weight loss programme include a vicar, a police officer and a nurse who is getting married later in the year. Tom Kerridge has famously lost 12 stone following a ‘no carb’ regime, and is now turning his attention to low-calorie cooking to help others.
Tom Kerridge says: “It’s impossible to lose weight and keep the weight off for good if you don’t enjoy what you’re eating. The NHS offers really sound advice about how to lose weight so I’ve taken this as the starting point and decided to challenge myself as a chef to come up with really appealing lower calorie dishes people will want to eat every day. The cooking techniques mean there’s no compromise on flavour and you’re promised a generous plate of food!
“I’m hoping this will help more people to lose weight and still love what they eat. They’ve all got strong reasons why they want or need to lose weight. So they’ve agreed to cut down their calorie intake, and in return I’m providing them with recipes they can make and enjoy at home. We’ll have to see how well they get on.”
